A study of more than 2000 eight year-olds has found nearly half are sleeping in bedrooms that are too cold.

The world-first research was a joint project between the building researchers BRANZ and the University of Auckland longitudinal study, Growing Up in New Zealand.

It got eight year-olds to spend two days collecting temperature and humidity information at home and school.
